    15.3 fuller length outside off and Jamshed, looking to drive through extra-cover, gets a thick edge on its way to the keeper. Gives away a useful start as Zimbabwe strike for the first time this morning 66/1
    32.2 full outside off, and Shehzad has fallen under pressure in the deep. He drove it and took the aerial route but didn't get the distance and Sikander Raza at long-off runs to his right and takes a good catch 119/2

    49.4 it is not often you get a second straight chance at redemption. This time Misbah, who had crossed with Hafeez the previous ball, hits it straight in the same area, except this one is higher than flatter. Raza settles in under it, and completes the catch 251/6
    40.2 length ball on middle and leg. Prosper falls sharply to his left to hold on to a sharp return chance. Excellent response from Utseya after Amin signalled his intent. Timely wicket for Zimbabwe, as Umar goes for a promising cameo of 33 off 25 balls. In walks the master of disaster, the incomparable, Shahid Afridi 170/3
    43.6 short of a length outside off and without moving his feet Afridi has a waft at it and ends up getting a thick edge on the way to the keeper. This could hurt Pakistan's chances of a competitive total, while Zimbabwe will like their chances even more 195/4
    48.4 full delivery on leg and Ahmed, trying to squirt it through the off side, ends up getting an edge which just carries to Brendan Taylor behind. Good low catch 243/5

    10.4 and Rehman does the trick in his first over. He tosses this one up much more than the previous balls. Masakadza's eyes light up as he comes down the track but he plays across the line, looking to clip it towards midwicket. The ball grips, turns and leaves Masakadza stranded in the middle of the wicket as Sarfraz does the rest 46/2
    3.4 oh, he's fallen to the only man out there in the deep. The ball was there to be hit, but Sibanda doesn't get the power he wanted. Nice, flighted ball from Hafeez and he goes down on one knee to slog sweep it. Umar Amin runs around and pulls out the slide to hold on to a good catch. Zimbabwe lose their first 12/1

    15.6 given straightaway! It pitched on length just outside off, Raza went back to defend but missed and was struck right in front of the stumps after turning. Four down now Zimbabwe 68/4

    39.6 and its all over. Ajmal gives this one a little air and bowling from around the wicket forces Waller to look to clip it into the leg side. The leading edge is taken and Abdur Rehman at point takes the simplest of catches. Pakistan win the deciding ODI and claim the series. 152/10
    22.4 gone this time! It was closer and would have hit the stumps. Afridi darted another one into the batsman, it pitched around off and came, Chigumbura defended but his bat didn't come down on time and the ball hit his pads right in front of the stumps just around the knee roll 87/6
    36.6 Oh mix up there and he's run out! Holds this one back just a touch and the batsman stays at his crease, looking to work it square on the leg side. He can't make any contact as the ball dribbles down to short third man. The batsman sets off for a single but the fielder grabs the ball and throws it back with more than enough time for the keeper to remove the bails. Utseya trudges off and Zimbabwe lose an important wicket 145/7
    37.2 cleans him up with the doosra. Brilliant bowling from Ajmal. Inviting flight draws the batsman forward into a defence that lacked conviction. The ball turns past the outside edge and crashes into top of off. Ajmal lives up to his nickname of Magician 146/8
    38.3 top edge and Rehman yells a loud 'mine' and takes it safely. Another wicket in the infamous Powerplay. Fuller ball on middle forces the Panyangara to go for the sweep but he is nowhere near the pitch of it and skies it. Rehman moves a few yards to his left and holds on to a relatively easy catch 149/9
